An area of high pressure will remain in firm control of our weather through the midweek period. As this fair weather maker slides to the east of the region today, winds will shift into the south and southwest, allowing high temperatures to increase a few degrees through this period.
Low pressure, and an associated cold front will pass through the region on Thursday, bringing a threat for showers to the area, along with gusty west winds. Conditions will turn cooler and unsettled toward the end of the week and into the weekend as several fast moving systems bring threats for sporadic precipitation, which may be in the form in wet snow, especially in the higher elevations.
